The City of Fitchburg Fire Department once again would like to invite all area Fire Departments to participate in our annual 4th of July Parade. This year’s parade will be held Wednesday July 4th, 2018 starting at 1000 hrs. We ask all companies attending to meet at our Summer St. Fire Station 42 Summer St Fitchburg MA. 01420 for 0845.
As always we welcome hand tubs, antiques, privately owned fire apparatus and communities outside our mutual aid district. We have around 40 pieces of apparatus each year and are always humbled by the turnout, we will have coffee, donuts and some awards to be handed out. We lead the parade which travels down Summer St to Main St to the Upper Common. Companies will not be tied up long. We hope to see you all in Fitchburg on the 4th to celebrate!!!
Disclaimer: Over the past few years we have received a few complaints on the excessive use of the sirens and air horns. We ask as always any companies who participate in the parade use good judgement with the air horns and sirens and make it enjoyable for all the children and parents watching. We ask that we not excessively use the sirens in-between the buildings on Main St. and throughout the parade route! We look forward to seeing you there! Thanks for your help on this matter.
